With family and friends visiting for Christmas, consider exploring the treasure in our own backyard – Old Mission San Jose! Come visit and take a self-guided tour. Begin with an 18-minute video that describes Spanish exploration, the 1797 founding of Mission San Jose, and day-to-day living within the mission. Further explore the Mission Museum, the Church, the historic cemetery, and conclude in our beautiful garden. We are open from 10AM to 5PM every day except Christmas and New Years.
